    Both men took off of their suit jackets as a marshall approached. Kwame Kilpatrick seemed to slip something into his mouth just before being detained.



    Rut Ruh I remember another defendant putting something in his mouth, in a different case, that defendant dropped dead shortly there after.
    Well whatever it is it should be wearing off here in the next couple hours & hopefully he'll have a sleepless jittery cold night. Time to think about how good he could've had it. How he could've made the city shine. Look at the wide path of destruction this man & his family have caused. Imo

    He could have made it to the top. I recall his words "I want to tell you, Detroit, that you done set me up for a comeback," in 2008. Who would have thought his return to Detroiit would lead to this?

    I've been entrenched in the Jodi Arias trial and neglected to post that Kwame Kilpatrick's request for bail was denied. Judges are tired of his lame excuses and copious lies.

    Judge rules Kilpatrick must stay in prison until sentencing

    Ex-Detroit mayor's record, prior parole problems cited


    By Robert Snell
    The Detroit News

    Detroit — Kwame Kilpatrick lost his bid Wednesday to leave prison and visit his family in Texas.

    U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds refused to release Kilpatrick on bond pending sentencing in the City Hall corruption case. He faces up to 20 years or more in federal prison after being found guilty of 24 charges, including racketeering conspiracy.

    The judge ruled Kilpatrick, who complained he needs to leave the federal prison in Milan so he can receive medical treatment for an injured knee, did not persuade her that he won't flee while out on bond...

    I, for one, don't think anyone should get bail if you are found guilty of a crime. I sure hope the judge gives him the maximum penalty. It's 20 years isn't it and don't let him out on good behavior either?

    Judge doesn't budge on Kilpatrick bond after knee discussions

    Judge awaits more info on old injury's threat to mobility


    By Tom Greenwood
    The Detroit News

    Detroit — Federal officials continue to play hardball with former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and are unmoved by his complaints of leg pain from an old football injury and resulting safety fears in prison.

    Transcripts of a Thursday meeting between U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds, Deputy U.S. Marshal Sandy Murphy, assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Chutkow and Kilpatrick defense attorney James C. Thomas showed federal officials weren't overly concerned about the alleged plight of the disgraced former mayor.

    The transcripts also demonstrated another attempt by Thomas to have the court reconsider its decision to deny bond to Kilpatrick, who is locked up pending sentencing in the City Hall corruption case...

    At least 20 years, but taking into consideration KK's past record, he could get more than that. I hope he does.

    I'm glad that the Judge isn't caving in to Kilpatrick's foolish demands. Judge knows as well as I do that Kwame wants to bolt. He is a major flight risk and can't be trusted anywhere outside prison. If he's gets a chance to run, that knee injury won't bother him one bit

    Kwame Kilpatrick makes third plea for prison release

    By Robert Snell
    The Detroit News

    Detroit — Former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick made a third attempt Monday to get out of federal prison, arguing again that he is not a flight risk or a danger to the community.

    "Due to the rigors of trial and parole, he was unable to spend any meaningful time with his family and he requests permission to do so at this time," lawyer James C. Thomas wrote in a request filed Monday in federal court...

    Kilpatrick Asks Judge To Overturn Conviction

    May 13, 2013 at 10:57 am

    Kwame Kilpatrick asks judge to overturn conviction

    By Robert Snell
    The Detroit News

    Detroit — Kwame Kilpatrick asked a federal judge Monday to overturn his corruption conviction and order a new trial.

    In a twist, Kilpatrick filed the request by himself and revealed that he has filed a complaint with the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission against his taxpayer-funded lawyer, James C. Thomas. It was unclear early Monday whether Kilpatrick had split with his longtime lawyer, who could not be reached immediately for comment.

    In the 22-page filing, Kilpatrick, claimed there was insufficient evidence to convict him of racketeering conspiracy, a 20-year felony, blasted the grand jury selection process and complained about his lawyer's conduct and "blatantly prejudicial" media coverage...

    Kilpatrick Wants New Attorney

    Kilpatrick 'terrified' of rehabbing knee in prison, wants new lawyer

    Robert Snell
    The Detroit News

    Detroit — Disgraced former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick entered a federal courtroom Thursday in handcuffs and prison threads in hopes to replace his longtime attorney with another tax-payer funded lawyer.

    Kilpatrick told U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds that his attorney, James Thomas, isn't defending him and refuses to communicate, saying their relationship is destroyed.

    Edmunds retorted, saying Kilpatrick's lawyers have represented him with vigor and with great personal effort...

    Lawyer says Kilpatrick's knee injury prevents him from fleeing, requests release on bond

    Robert Snell
    The Detroit News

    Kwame Kilpatrick was ordered to the federal prison in Milan March 11. He says he slipped on the transport van step that day, injuring his knee, and will need surgery to repair a ruptured tendon.

    Detroit — Kwame Kilpatrick can't flee on a gimpy knee, his new lawyer said, while making a request to have the former mayor released on bond pending sentencing in the City Hall corruption case.

    Kilpatrick needs surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his knee, might need to use a walker and has to undergo three months of physical therapy, defense lawyer Harold Gurewitz wrote in a court filing...

    Attorney seeks new trial

    Kwame Kilpatrick's attorney files request for new trial

    Filing says court didn't handle 'conflict of interest' issue with previous attorney correctly

    DETROIT -
    Kwame Kilpatrick's newest attorney has filed a request for a new trial.

    In March, Kilpatrick was found guilty of 24 charges, including racketeering and extortion. He's imprisoned while awaiting sentencing.

    A date hasn't yet been set for it. He could get 20 years in prison for the racketeering convictions alone.

    In May, Kilpatrick's prior counsel, James Thomas, withdrew from the case and handed it off to Harold Gurewitz.

    Gurewitz filed Kilpatrick's request for a new trial on June 28, saying Kilpatrick was denied his right to a "choice of conflict-free counsel"...

    Detroit ex-Mayor Kilpatrick to be sentenced Sept. 3

    Robert Snell /The Detroit News

    Detroit — Ex-Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will be sentenced Sept. 3, almost exactly one year after his City Hall corruption trial started in federal court.

    The sentencing date was set Thursday by U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds and will cap a years-long odyssey that saw Kilpatrick go from mayor and national political figure to federal prison inmate.

    Prosecutors say Kilpatrick, who was convicted of 24 charges including racketeering conspiracy in March, likely will be sentenced to 20 to 30 years in prison.

    “I would take the over if you set it at 20 years,” said Peter Henning, a former federal prosecutor who is a law professor at Wayne State University. “The government’s focus is going to be on the abuse of power and harm to the city.” ...

    No new trial for Kwame Kilpatrick

    August 8, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    Judge denies new trials for Kwame Kilpatrick, Bobby Ferguson

    Robert Snell and Serena Maria Daniels /The Detroit News


    Detroit — A federal judge refused to grant new trials Thursday to former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and city contractor Bobby Ferguson or acquit them of corruption charges.

    U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds said she would explain her decision in writing soon but hinted that her opinion would not contain any surprises.

    Kilpatrick and Ferguson were quickly handcuffed and escorted out of the courtroom by deputy U.S. Marshals, bound for the federal prison in Milan where they are being held until sentencing next month. But not before Kilpatrick turned to an unidentified female friend in the gallery and tapped his chest near his heart.

    The judge’s order removes one last obstacle ahead of sentencings for Kilpatrick, his father, Bernard, and Ferguson, all of whom were found guilty by a diverse jury in March following a five-month trial. Edmunds also refused to acquit Bernard Kilpatrick of a single tax charge...

    More stalling...

    Kwame Kilpatrick seeks to delay prison sentencing one month

    Robert Snell /The Detroit News

    Detroit— Former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick wants to push back his sentencing date in the City Hall corruption case one month so his new lawyers have more time to prepare.

    Kilpatrick’s lawyers filed a request Tuesday to delay the Sept. 3 sentencing, a request that would prolong the highly anticipated conclusion to one of the country’s biggest public corruption cases. A delay would protect Kilpatrick’s due process rights and give his new legal team time to review “voluminous testimony and trial exhibits,” according to a filing Tuesday in federal court.

    Attorneys Harold Gurewitz and Margaret Sind Raben replaced Kilpatrick’s trial team after the jury returned with guilty verdicts on 24 counts against the former mayor in March.

    “This court’s obvious rush to sentencing for Mr. Kilpatrick is a violation of his right to due process,” Gurewitz wrote...
